"Grounded" original acrylic painting on board, framed. Image size 40 by 40 cm.

“I regard myself as a representational painter, but use a variety of paint handling techniques.
I’m happy painting with the brush or the knife, and I like to paint anything from flowers to architecture, but landscapes are often my preferred subject. I don't consciously adopt a certain style or use a fixed method of working, but rather allow the subject to inform my choice of medium and my approach. I enjoy the immediacy of working ‘en plein air’ when possible. I work in Oils, Acrylic or Mixed Media, depending on my feeling for the subject. Light, colour, structure, and not least composition, all feature strongly in my work. My aim as an artist is to use my ‘minds eye’ to reveal the special character and atmosphere of a scene and to render a version of it which describes and conveys its nature.”

About the gallery

Found in historic Hay on Wye, Bluestone Gallery is a new addition to the famous Book Town. We hope to contribute to the creative mix already here so that Hay gets known for its galleries as well as its bookshops. Owned and run by Guy and Ellie Perkins, Bluestone has recently moved from Devizes where it enjoyed a loyal following for twenty years. Time for change of scene, Guy and Ellie are delighted to be part of this vibrant, friendly and thriving community!
